Abandoned fire lookout- The structure was largely preserved and possibly still used during high fire season. The lower living quarters were in shambles as both man and animal had destroyed the contents. The wood floor of the fire tower was smoothed by years of use and worn into a work of art. The view extended from Arizona to the Black Range covering thousands of square miles. I could have sat here all day. Though it would be ill advised, the view from the tower during a storm would be a exhilarating.
The road from Mogollion to Bearwallow ascends switchbacks and mountainside tracks that border Gila Wilderness and provide stunning views. The road is mostly maintained being a primary route to Willow Creek and Snow Lake. The road can become treacherous during storms and is closed during the late winter months. A primitive route exists for those willing to do some map research and exploration.
